Screen Actors Guild Says It's Investigating Allegations of Financial Impropriety by Former Manager LA Times' Company Town blog

The Screen Actors Guild said on Sunday that it's investigating alleged financial impropriety by a former manager, reports the Los Angeles Times' Company Town blog.

According to the article, a person familiar with the investigation said the alleged impropriety involved between $200,000 and $250,000, although the guild declined to name the individual or specify how much money was involved.

The story says that the former manager was fired last month and worked in the residuals estates and trusts department, which attempts to distribute unallocated residual payments to the estates of members who can't be found or those who are deceased. "Once this investigation is complete, we will work with local and federal law enforcement agencies on further actions to be taken as appropriate," the guild said in a statement.
